Generic Function

This page contains the links to all 54 Generic Functions that are specified in this repository and that are part of one or more Generic Pattern(s). The list presented below is not exhausting, many more functions can be defined using the OIAm vocabulary. However, the functions in the list below do play an important role in this repository and serve as examples for an extensive description of functions according to OIAm. They are grouped by the Working Area under which they reside. Every Generic Function can also have a dedicated icon; a handy overview of the icons present can be found here. Documented Generic Functions also have a brief description; the comprehensive list of GFs and their brief description can be found in this list.

There are no pending Generic Function proposals.
